The dogbone parts numbers are in your manual and no I can't see supporting a dog bone. I'd put your truck on a block and rev it to mid to full rev and watch the wheels if they like bounce up and down if you know what I mean then it is probably a wheel issue.There are other reasons if you are constantly breaking dog bones.

I miss read what he posted I thought he meant to the wheels. Either way I don't see a way of supporting the drive shafts.

Hmm I am not sure if this will work but check out HPI parts Kinderman. I know a large number of their 1/10th scale truck parts will fit the Redcat's 1/10th scale trucks/cars. You may be able to find a part that is more durable. Check out their website at www.hpiracing.com

The dogbone part number is 6061 and no you can't support them. If you don't have tiny slivers of fuel line in the drive cups then your going wear out dog bones like no tomorrow. You need to take ALL the dog bones out and check the drive cups and put a small sliver of fuel line in the drive cup to take up the slack so they don't slap around in the drive cup. Less play=Longer life. Just don't get them to tight, you should be able to move the A-Arm up and down and turn the wheel with no binding.

No HPI dogbones won't work.

Do a search I posted some HPI part number drive shafts that work perfectly. They are also a little bit better made around the ends and dont snap the tips off as easy. Ill see if i can find them

im asking what size the front and back driveshaft are/ example:55mm

gokartingbob455 06-30-2008 12:15 PM

RE: dogbones *please help*
 
their in your instruction manual although im pretty sure that they have it wrong cause it says the back driveshaft is bigger than the front but its not sooo i guess ill switch the numbers and....... front driveshaft - 87mm rear driveshaft - 55mm
hope this helps. the manual is reallllllyyyy crappy
